These pictures were taken with my Fujifilm Finepix S9000 digital camera
on a trip to Atlanta, Georgia, for the SIAM Parallel Processing conference, March 11-14, 2008.
Images are shown at a resolution of 640x480,

Travel day: after a lab meeting at MHC, a ride to
Boston [9 Pictures], a parking zoo at
Logan, a temporary closure of the TSA checkpoint, then finally an easy
flight to Atlanta and MARTA ride to the conference hotel.
Wednesday, March 12, 2008
First day of the conference, but the pictures are all the views from
my room on the 17th floor of the Atlanta Renaissance Downtown Hotel

More conference, mostly, but the day's pictures are from a hockey
game: Calgary Flames vs. Atlanta Thrashers at Philips
Arena [37 Pictures].

No pictures today. The conference wrapped up, then it was back to the
airport on MARTA, with time to check in and eat before a
close-to-on-time flight back to Boston. I got out of town just a few
hours before a tornado struck downtown Atlanta. Back in Boston, it
was a bit of a frustrating time trying to get a shuttle to overflow
lot 4, but once there, it was a rainy (and a little snowy) but
otherwise uneventful ride back to Pittsfield.
